Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told a crowd on Thursday at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) National Candidate Training that Democrats have injected once “radical” ideas into the “mainstream” of the Democratic Party.

“A few years ago in the Senate, I introduced a Medicare-For-All bill. [It] had zero cosponsors,” Sanders said. “This time, we have 16 cosponsors.”

“What was once considered radical is now mainstream,” he added, to cheers from the crowd.

The socialist called for an increase in the minimum wage to $15, saying that Democrats once opposed such a hike. “Now we have 30 cosponsors on $15 an hour,” Sanders said.
